Championship predictions

Paul Carcaterra breaks down the ultimate 4 groups

Penn State: They’ve among the best offenses I’ve ever seen. I evaluate it to the 1990 Syracuse staff that was extensively thought to be the perfect offense of all-time. Penn State is placing themselves in that dialog.

And their two headline gamers … Grant Ament broke the report for assists in a single season. Mac O’Keefe is the nation’s main objective scorer. With a giant particular person effort in championship weekend, he may break the NCAA single-season goal-scoring report. So you’ve gotten a one-two punch in Ament and O’Keefe. A passer and a shooter. And two of the perfect to ever do it in a single season in NCAA historical past. Their offense is frightening and a really tough group to sport plan for due to how fast they transfer the ball and the way unselfish they’re.

Yale: It has an X consider TD Ierlan. Final 12 months as a sophomore at Albany, he statistically had probably the most dominant face-off season in NCAA historical past, and he is repeating these kind of numbers this 12 months. He can maintain the ball away from the Penn State offense. That is why it is a first rate matchup for Yale — the staff that creates the most important complications for Penn State within the closing 4.

I believe defensively Yale has had some holes down the stretch. They’re going to have their fingers full in opposition to Penn State. However I believe their offense is likely one of the higher ones within the nation. They’ve loads of items — guys like Jackson Morrill, Matt Gaudet, Matt Brandau and Jack Tigh are 4 big-time gamers who can step up in moments, and so they all do various things for the Yale offense, so they seem to be a powerful staff to scout.

Virginia: They’ve probably the most versatile participant within the nation in Ryan Conrad. This man actually does the whole lot — floor balls, wins faceoffs, scores objectives, by no means will get drained. He is the final word Swiss Military knife with so many various ways in which he is usually a issue within the sport. He is the one distinction maker for Virginia previously 4 or 5 video games.

Duke: You have a look at John Danowski, he has been in so many of those championship weekends, he is received three nationwide titles. However this is perhaps his finest defensive staff, headlined by JT Giles-Harris, who received ACC defensive participant of the 12 months, after which Cade Van Raaphorst, who was a primary staff All-American final 12 months. These guys are seasoned vets who can management one-on-one matchups and are nice communicators and leaders. A whole lot of the groups that Danowski has had previously, their offense was the headline. This 12 months it is their protection.


Any of the 4 groups may win, but when issues go accordingly and groups play their finest, I would need to favor Penn State. The massive secret’s the short turnaround. If issues flush out the best way they need to, Penn State is the No. 1 staff within the nation for a purpose.
